Paint It Pink is a live album, with two complete live recordings from 2005.
Two tracks, 75 minutes. Played and recorded in front of an unexpecting film festival audience in Tampere and a stunned festival crowd in Belgrade in 2005, the style of these recordings vary from the playful, hyperactive sonics of the first set to the full-on noise assault of the second. The performance in Belgrade is probably one of the most brutal and straightforward shows from Pink Twins. Lovingly mastered by Tommi Keränen with supreme analogue studio gear, the CD maintains the full-bodied sound of the performances for an excessive dose of ear-caressing aural bliss.
Pink Twins is a duo of musicians and video artists, brothers Juha and Vesa Vehviläinen from Helsinki, Finland.
Active since 1997, Pink Twins have displayed their video works and played their music to audiences in Europe and Asia, in festivals, art spaces, clubs, churches and outdoor events.
Mostly created with self-made software, Pink Twins’ video works are abstract and painterly, from formal compositions to extremely fast shapeless pixelstorms. Music of Pink Twins, based on improvisation and the brothers’ symbiotic collaboration, is a chaotic whole of intense soundbursts, melodies and infinitely detailed sounds. In their concerts Pink Twins create a constantly changing multilayered wall of sound and aim for a physical, mental and spatial experience. The live music is normally accompanied by video projections.
During 2005 and 2006 Pink Twins have performed actively in Europa and Asia. Most notable performances have been the Venice Biennale Music Festival and a tour in China. Pink Twins also had several solo and group exhibitions, for example in Sweden, Luxemburg, China and Mongolia.
Pink Twins have released five CDs on their own label Pink Twins Media. A double DVD compilation is being prepared to be released during 2006.
